Axe Core 4.7

Aside should not be contained in another landmark

Ensures the complementary landmark or aside is at top level.

Complementary content is content that supports the primary idea of a page or document. Users of screen readers have the option to bypass supplemental content that shows at the accessibility API’s top level. Embedding an <aside> element within another landmark may prevent the ability for screen reader users to browse through supplemental content.

What this Accessibility Rule Checks

Do not insert <aside> elements or elements containing role="complementary" inside landmark-marked content.
